At work today a coworker was IMing me some questions. I IM'd her back telling her it was a complicated answer and that she should call me to talk about it.
The phone rings. I hit speakerphone and the following conversation takes place:
me: Bare Associates this is Carl.
phone: How was your day?
me (puzzled): good, how was your day?
I'm puzzled at this point because we had been talking back and forth the entire day. Seemed kind of late to start small talk.
phone: This is your wife
me: oh hi dear!
Maybe it's just funny to me.
